35 But asomeone will say, “How are bthe dead raised? And with what kind of body do they come?”
36 aYou fool! That which you bsow does not come to life unless it dies;
37 and that which you sow, you do not sow the body which is to be, but a bare grain, perhaps of wheat or of 1something else.
38 But God gives it a body just as He wished, and ato each of the seeds a body of its own.
39 All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one flesh of men, and another flesh of beasts, and another flesh of birds, and another of fish.
40 There are also heavenly bodies and earthly bodies, but the glory of the heavenly is one, and the glory of the earthly is another.
41 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for star differs from star in glory.
42 aSo also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown 1ba perishable body, it is raised 2can imperishable body;
43 it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in aglory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power;
44 it is sown a anatural body, it is raised a bspiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.
45 So also it is written, “The first aman, Adam, became a living soul.” The blast Adam became a clife-giving spirit.
46 However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural; then the spiritual.
47 The first man is afrom the earth, 1bearthy; the second man is from heaven.
48 As is the earthy, so also are those who are earthy; and as is the heavenly, aso also are those who are heavenly.
49 Just as we have aborne the image of the earthy, 1we bwill also bear the image of the heavenly.
